Extracting summary and remark comments within methods

I am able to successfully build my help documentation through the SandCastle GUI (version 1.3.1.1). I have noticed that only comments preceding the method name for example is captured in the generated help docs; however, the comments inside the method is not. Has anyone else encountered this and know a way around this via a toggle in the GUI or in the sandcastle.config file? thanks in advance.

XML comments (those starting with ///) are the only kind captured and they are only valid on class and class member declarations. Comments inside of a method body will not be included. If you want them in the help file, put them with the other comments in a <summary> or <remarks> tag outside the method body.
